Hollywood is just figuring out what country music fans all ready know— Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmy Lou Harris, and Faith Hill are stars.
The four ladies are among a group of 30, who will be receiving stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the Class of 2019.
Dolly, a previous recipient of her own star on the Walk of Fame, receiving one in 1984, will receive her second star along with Linda and Emmy Lou for their collaborative work on the album Trio. After coming together for the project, the ladies later released a follow up album, Trio II.
“I am so excited that I have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said Dolly in a video. “Well, not just me, but with two of my best friends, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, for the Trio. Now, they tell me that I’m the first person this century—the first woman—to have two stars. Of course that’s natural. I like to do things in pairs, if you know what I mean. But I really am excited, so thank you.”
Thank you @HollywoodChamberOfCommerce & #WOFCommittee. I’m so honored to be returning to the #HollywoodWalkOfFame and this time as #TRIO with my best friends #LindaRonstadt and #EmmylouHarris! And very special thanks to #BrianEdwards @EnterMissThang for your dedication, love & support in making this incredible career milestone happen for us!
With the announcement of Faith being honored with a star, her proud husband Tim McGraw took to social media to congratulate his wife on her honor.
“Proud of this badass Mississippi girl! Congrats @faithhill for being selected as an honoree for the Hollywood Walk of Fame’s Class of 2019!”
Tim received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006.
